The Division of Drug Information (DDI) is CDER's focal point for public inquiries. We serve the public by providing information on human drug products and drug product regulation by FDA.
FDA’s Drug Shortages website has a new feature: Therapeutic Categories. In addition to the A-Z index, Therapeutic Categories are now available. The A-Z index lists drugs in alphabetical order by generic name or active ingredient. The new Therapeutic Categories tab shows drugs in shortage by categories. Therapeutic Category is based on indications and commonly used population, as in Pediatrics, Oncology, Anesthesia, and more. The category designation does not indicate FDA approval status. For FDA approved drug products, continue to refer to Drugs@FDA. If you have questions or feedback, please notify Drug Shortages at firstname.lastname@example.org.
